pitching and planning a production

treatment:

I’m focusing on cyber bullying for my short film because they are cheap and easy to film as I can use the actors house and laptop so I will not have to buy props or hire a set this makes it more realistic, it is also a current dilemma/ situation for anyone in the world with internet access. This appeals to the UK film audience because anyone who can access the film will likely have internet access so it is relatable/common. Most/all short films about bullying, professionally made in the UK, have been popular and it is a current issue, so it can be interesting for the viewer. Scene one: main character on their computer. I want the storyline to be established instantly. It will be a teenager – This is more relatable to the subject. It will then show the main character with friends, showing them the messages; it will go from there to revealing her friends made a fake facebook profile to tell her what they really think. The next scene will be her finding out and losing her friends. The next scene will be her moving schools and dealing with her old “friends”. The last scene will be the police going to the main characters friends house and leaving with the friends in handcuffs. This last scene will be in slow motion, fade to black, credits come up. There are 3 main characters in the film. The main character is called Ellie, she is the one being cyber bullied She has 2 friends that are girls: Lauren and Sabie. My film is going to be a short film, this is because this type of genre is usually about 50 minutes long which fits in well with the UK film industry trends, like the film, cyber-bully, this was aired on TV and was very popular among young people.

synopsis:

In a world where technology is key, a young girl struggles to keep her happiness alive. A young girl called Emily has been tortured through the internet, her own friends continue to cyber bully her in secret. She struggles to the will to stay alive as her torment slowly breaks her. She is forced to stay quiet as she slowly realizes it is her friends. Her own silence torments her throughout the film until she finally tells the police. This leads to the arrest of the bullies and the end of the film.

Title medium:

The title of my film is dark net, this is because it helps to get to the point of the film but doesn’t give too much away so the audience are intrigued by it. The title is also short and snappy which will attract a wider audience because it is easy to read, this fits with the current trends of the UK film market because most films only have a few words for the title.

running time:

i would like for the running time of this to be 50 minutes to an hour, this is because it fits in with the usual time a short film runs for. This also appeals to teenagers because they have a shorter attention span than others so they will easily be able to stay engaged in the film.

cast /cast list:

I can go to a local group in Melksham called stagecoach, they focus on acting, singing and dancing i could do this because they have training from real actors , i could also ask the drama group in new college, Swindon. this is because they will like to add more to their portfolio of what they have starred in, this means they will be more willing to do it for free.

Main role: Georgina Kite will be playing a teenager called Ellie carter i would like her to play this role because she is the same age as my target audience (16) so they will find this more relateable, it is also because she has the same sexuality as the character so she might be more emotionally attached to the role and preform better as she has had these things said or done to her.

 

extras: i will use extras because i want to focus on the one person throughout the film, this means the audience can be more attached to her and it makes it easier to follow the story line.

target audience:

My target audience is young adults / teenagers. This is because the issue is associated with them the most this makes it relatable to the UK film industry because it will easily target them . This is the primary and niche’ audience because this is the group of people that will mainly watch it. I will then have a secondary audience of teachers, police or parents. This will be because they want to know more about the issue and my film will be based on facts. I would like the film to be popular in the UK, this is because i will be using a solely UK cast and it is a low budget short film. The film can be aimed at an active audience (people who are watching the production and taking an active part in it EG. commenting on the storyline as they watch) as they will want to follow the story line and understand what is going on. It can also be viewed by a passive audience (people who are watching but aren’t really paying attention EG. having it on whilst on the background) because it will be a pretty easy story line to follow.

budget/funding:

funding: i could get my funding from a range of different companies, this is because the UK film industry does not have the money to give loads of money to film producers. I could get my funding from ishorts+ they produce films that raise awareness which is what my short film is doing. They will give me up to £10000 to get the rest of the money i could get funding from beacons as they award up to £15000 they also allow emerging film makers to test their skills this will be useful because i will have to hire a slightly less professional crew to make this film because i will not have the money to hire a proper film crew.

++

 

production schedule:

launch date: I have decided that the launch date for my production will be September the 30th 2016, this is because i want it to come out during the school term so that it is more relateable to people. It is also after all the big movies come out so they will not “drown out” my production. This gives enough time to complete all elements of production as it is just under a year away. It should also allow some extra time for when the crew need to take days off.

relevant legal/ethical issues:

copyright means that if anyone has made/named something you can not use it without their permission and you mostly have to pay people to use their song/brand/logo. i can avoid this by using own made music or using the music department in the college to adapt songs so they are not the same i can also use the graphics department to create any logos needed for the production.  As i want this film to be on before the watershed which is 9:00pm(so more people can watch it)  there will be no offensive language or gory scenes, this will also make sure that nothing offensive is in the production. To film on properties i will have to write permission letters, to do this i will have to use professional language and possibly pay the owner of the place i would like to film. If i wanted to film in a public place i need filming permission, i will need the co operation of the public police and local authority. I will inform the police of any written planned filming to help with this process i can contact the UK screen agencies. As I will need permission from the  local authority or council. i will have to get in touch with them first they are responsible for public land, public buildings, roads and parking. The UK screen agencies can also help me with this.

Classification:

My film will be an age rating of 15, this is because it is a serious issue and i would like to add some maturity to the film, this means that slightly older teens can watch it.

 

 

Working Title

What is Working Title?

Working Title is a production company that produce movies and television programs. It was co-founded in 1983 by Tim Bevan, Sarah Radclyffe and William Royal.

Structure:

It is based in London but has studios across the world, such as Ireland, Los Angeles and California. It is owned by Universal studios, and Comcast, Working title get most of the funding from these companies as they support the making of Working Titles films and television programs. There have been many company collaborations. Working title productions have working with companies such as Carnival Films, Monkey Kingdom, Chocolate Media Universal Pictures,Relativity Media and Cameron Mackintosh Ltd. Although contractually allowed to produce any film with a budget of up to $35 million, Bevan and Fellner consult with studio executives Comcast.

Products:

Working title have produced many films. their main genre is romantic comedies, such as: About Time, Bridget Jones’ diary and definitely, maybe. They also produce smaller low budget indie films such as: Notting Hill, Ned Kelly, A serious man, Frost/Nixon. Working Title have also done many comedies such as hot fuzz, johnny English, Paul and Shawn of the dead. The cast in the film ‘about time’ consists of a mostly British cast, the actors (that are British) are:

  • Rachel mcadams
  • Domhnall Gleeson
  • Bill Nighy
  • Lydia Wilson
  • Will Merrick
  • Vanessa Kirby

the director is Richard Curtis, He is a British screenwriter and director. he has also directed, love actually, and the boat that rocked which are all British films.

The mise en scene in Les Miserables is very consistent as it has the same style throughout to show the time period (French revolution) there is a clear contrast between characters, this means that the audience can easily see what class they are just by looking at the costumes. The backdrops are quite dark this is to symbolize the characters emotions and thoughts. There is a range of camera angles and the scenes do not cut very sharply however they do not slowly fade in and out,  the scenes jump but only at necessary times such as when the character is talking to another character. This is because the director wanted to keep the audiences attention by keeping the camera as still as possible to see the facial expressions and body language clearly. There is clear meanings created through the songs because it is a musical they have to show emotion through their voices. this means that the audience can clearly understand how the character is feeling.

Production Process:

Pre production:

Les Miserables (2012) is not an original idea, although it is meant to be played in theatres, it has been adapted to be a musical film, it is based on Les Misérables by Claude-Michel Schönberg which was originally based on The novel, Les Misérables by Victor Hugo. casting for the main characters started in November 2011. Casting for extras started in February 2012. The script was written by, William Nicholson, Alain Boublil, Claude-Michael Schonberg and Herbert Kretzermer. The latesat veersion (2012) had Kate Fasulo as the production supervisor, she works for Working Title. All location scouting and filming was done in:

Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich, London, UK

Ashridge Park, Little Gaddesden, Hertfordshire, UK(winter countryside outside Paris)
Portsmouth, Hampshire, UK
Boughton House, Kettering, Northamptonshire, UK
Pultney Bridge and Weir, Bath, Somerset, UK
Winchester Cathedral, Winchester, Hampshire, UK
Winchester College, Winchester, Hampshire, UK
Frithsden Beeches, Hertfordshire, UK(woodlands)
Chatham Historic Dockyard, Chatham, Kent, UK
Pinewood Studios, Iver Heath, Buckinghamshire, UK
Ewelme, Oxfordshire, UK
Winchester, Hampshire,  UK
Richard Attenborough Stage, Pinewood Studios, Iver Heath, Buckinghamshire, England, UK,
Wolvesey Castle, Hampshire,  UK
Production:
The equipment used in Les Miserables include:
Boom mics
DPA mics
Wide angle lenses
light meters
master prime lenses
lavalier microphones
earpieces (as musical guides)
filming: The Director Tom Hooper had said that all filming had been completed 23 June 2012. There was a $61 million budget on the film, this means that most filming had to be in local places, which is why it was mostly shot in England – Pinewood Studios. The vocals were shot live, this means that there had to be multiple cameras on set (at least 10) so the singing wasn’t being constantly interrupted and that they had a complete clear shot with different angles at the same time. The actors were told to move freely as the director (Tom Hooper) thought that they were under enough pressure, doing multiple shots and listening to the music without having to worry about where they were to stand.
post production:
The editors of Les Miserables were, Melanie Oliver and Chris Dickens. As the sound was recorded live on set there was no need for a pre recording to be synced up to the actors. The sound Technician decided this was the best way to do it because there is more freedom in the song, which looks more realistic. the whole production was digitally edited as this is faster and makes it easier to keep to the editing schedule. during the editing stage there were added visual effects to add to the effect of an early, poverty stricken French society. Artists combined green screen bridge footage of Russell Crowe from Pinewood with digital versions of Paris for the final shots.
Marketing/Promotion:

Working Title promote their films/TV shows through social media, they advertise the shows/films more than the company, because they make small clips of a particular film/show and put that on Facebook or twitter this appeals to a wide audience because people across the world use this social media as it is a way that people can stay in contact with each other, YouTube is a big contribute for this as they allow trailers before vloggers or entertainers videos. Les Miserables’ first teaser trailer posted online on 30 May 2012. The film also has it’s own official Facebook page which launched on 20th of September 2012. Les miserables was advertised through the internet, the trailers were streamed on social media such as Facebook and twitter. The official photography of Les Miserables was posed on billboards the photography was usually the main character with the release date. this is to keep it simple because people will be in their cars and will go past it quite quickly.

reviews: 

“This “Les Mis” does make you feel, intensely and sometimes thrillingly, by honoring the emotional core of its source material.”

“Absolutely incredible – easily matches the likes of The Hobbit, Lincoln and Zero Dark Thirty”

“I`m not a fan of musicals at all, so I watched this expecting to hate it, but I liked what it was all about.”

“There are undoubtedly some amazing scenes in there, almost all the feature songs of the original musical have really been captured well”

The Telegraph gave the film a 5/5 star rating, and metacritic gave the the film 63% out of 100% the film overall was very successful with mostly good reviews. the cast had done radio interviews before and after the film with BBC radio 4, Ollie Cole and radio times, they mainly spoke about how it was going, what had happened and if there were any funny stories, they also said when the film was coming out along with when the teaser/main trailer was coming out. (before the film) once the film had come out they mostly discussed how many takes they had to do, what the other actors were like, if there were any more funny stories, and how close(relationship wise)  the actors had become. The merchandise is mostly clothing, this includes t-shirts and pajamas. They mostly have the main characters prisoner number on them or characters faces.  There are also phone cases, bracelets, posters and stickers. The main product is the DVD or Blue-ray and the second main product sold is the CD with the main songs on which is sold online (amazon or ebay) or in stores such as HMV and most supermarkets.

Distribution:

Les Miserables was distributed by Universal Pictures. Working title have a strong relationship with universal because universal is the company that provides most of the funding so naturally they helped fund les miserables.It has been shown in multiplex cinemas such as odeon and vue. The DVD individually is £8.45 online. The film has now been distributed onto now tv and sky movies, the two companies work together.

Market Position:

Working Title’s competitors include: Studio Canal, Tiger Aspect Pictures & Film Four. The appeal of the film to the UK audience is mostly that it is shot in UK locations and that it has UK actors in. The contrast of this  being that it appeals to the British audience, this makes it appealing because many people find this interesting or entertaining. Working title isnt associated with Hollywood much because it is an English film production company, however they do have studios in america, Los Angeles and California.

Audience Appeal:

The film appeals to a passive audience because they can loosely follow the film by listening to the songs or just glancing at what is happening occasionally.  It appeals to active audiences because it has an easy story line to follow and is in English so most of the world can understand it.

Task 4: P4 M3 D2 – Carry out a Production Role within a Production Team

Vlogs:

Pre Production:

Production:

Post Production

Self Evaluation:

In pre production I helped to write the initial script as I helped to incorporate the storyline, I corrected the spelling and grammar mistakes, I feel I did this quite well as I did it in a short amount of time and it was done in the same day that the script was done. I also made a recording schedule, I feel that I did not do this as well as I could because I kept getting distracted and continued to put it off so it was not done in the short amount of time I was hoping it would be done in, if I was to improve this I would take myself to a room where there were no distractions and sit down to finish / do it. I helped to annotate the storyboard, I wrote what size and type of lenses I was planning to use and what lighting we could use along with what type of shot it was, this was so I could explain to the viewer what me and the director wanted to see within the shot. I feel as though I did this quite well because once one of the pages had been completely filled out with the sketches, it was handed to me to annotate whilst the next page was being completed. I did this quite well because it was efficient and saved a lot of time. I also went out with my crew member Beth to do some test shots with different lighting and scenes, we did this because it would save more time during production as we would know exactly what we wanted to set up and where. I did not do this very well because we did not use many different types of lighting and we did not go to many different locations. If I was to do this again, I would improve it by going to more locations and experimenting with lots of different equipment. As my first role of being the camera operator I feel as though I did not have much to contribute to this section of the project, because there was not much practical work that involved using the camera, however I worked within the time frame the only thing I mostly need to improve is my focus, if I was to focus more then I would be able to get more done in a shorter amount of time as this would then speed up the pre production process.

In the production process I did most of the filming, I walked to and from the locations with equipment such as a tripod, reflector and camera bag that contained lenses, filters and two cameras. I did this very well as I did not have to walk very far and the equipment was not very heavy. I worked with the director to follow the storyboard and choose the best angles. I feel that I did this quite well because I did not get angry if I disagreed however my communication skills were not that good and I could have voiced my opinions more. To improve on this I need to become more confident in using a camera and say more of my opinions and ideas. I manually focused each shot, this was because I wanted the viewer to be able to see the subjects clearly, I feel I did this quite well because me and the director agreed when it was best to stop focusing (when the frame was fully focused). As a camera operator I feel that I still have a lot to learn on the manual mode of the cameras, I do not have much experience changing lenses or choosing which lens to use for which camera and shot / angle to improve this I could find work experience or go to camera workshops. As a camera operator I feel as though I had one of the biggest jobs and that I worked well under that pressure however I need to be able to put my ideas forward better and in a more assertive way, this means that if I disagree then I need to inform the director and actors that I feel this way.

in the post production process I helped to edit the teaser trailer, I did this by creating a base trailer that the main editor could adapt / use. I feel that I did this quite well as it did not take me long and I did it in one day, this shows that I was efficient and focused during this time. I then chose the music to go into the main trailer, I chose an instrumental because I felt that the melody would overpower the dialogue in the main trailer. I feel that I did not do this very well as it took me a long time to decide, however I feel that I picked the right music to suit the style of the trailer. I also colour matched scenes, I feel as though I did this quite well because I taught myself how to do it from a YouTube video and it did not take me very long to colour match the scenes to make it look professional and similar. Whilst I was editing I cut parts of scenes out. I did this because I wanted the trailer to be a certain amount of time and I wanted the audience to stay engaged, as this would make them want to watch the film. I feel as though I did this quite well because I have a lot of experience cutting scenes so I was able to do it efficiently, this means I was able to spend more time on other parts of the production. during the editing process I also added titles to the trailer this was because I wanted the audience to be able to follow the trailer easily and to add a more of a comedic value to the production. I feel I did not do this as well as I could have because I did not follow the script and so it took me longer to think of what to write, If I was to do this again I would improve it by following the script / storyboard to make it easier to incorporate the storyline in the trailer. As my second role of being an editor I feel as though I could have had more experience with the software final cut, however I feel as though I worked well with the director to get his ideas through in the teaser trailer and I took feedback from the rest of the crew quite well about the main trailer.

Meg has done a very good job at being the camera operator as she has been very knowledgeable about how to use the camera effectively. She has also been good at following instructions given to her by the director. An area to work on is her communication skills when trying to get her opinion over to the director on what sort of shot and angle should be used. Meg is also very good a using the editing software, and made a huge contribution to editing the trailer to a professional level. Meg always contributed ideas through out the entire process.

Task 3: P3 M2 D1: Analysis of Skills that Enable me to Carry out a Chosen Media Production Role

Screen Shot 2015-10-22 at 17.36.00

Write up of skills audit:

  1. Choosing the correct camera lenses and angles to use is not a strong point for me, this is because I have not had much experience with a camera and different lenses. It is also because I haven’t experimented with many other cameras apart from my own which does not have a detachable lens. To improve this I could go to a photography workshop where I live and ask about different lenses, or get taught about which ones I should be using for which subject matter. If I was to choose the wrong lens for the production I could potentially make the subject look slightly wider or slimmer than they should be, the resolution of the production would be bad because it does not fit with the right picture resolution. If I was to choose the right camera lenses, it would be easy to keep everything in focus and the production would look as professional as it possibly can because we would have the correct equipment.
  2. Being able to put my opinion forward in an assertive manor is also not a strong point for me, this is because I am not very confident with my ideas, to improve this I could start small and gradually build my ideas up along with my confidence and work with others to put my ideas across until I can do it on my own. The impact of me not doing this well is that the production team might not see me as a very responsive team player, which could effect my jobs in the future as they would tell my others employers that I am quite shy and do not participate. The impact of me doing this well is that I could be offered to work for the team again and I could built trust between me and the production team, I could also help to make the production better and enjoy what I am doing more.
  3. Working for long hours is also not a strong point for me because I am not used to doing it and I get tired very easily, to improve this I could get more sleep at night and be more productive during the day to keep me awake. To do this I could find things to keep me busy throughout the day so I am distracted. The impact of me not being able to work long hours is that I could slow the production down therefore the schedule will be out of place and the film wont come out on the release date, this is bad because it will lower the film ratings because people will be less interested in the film. If I was able to work long hours (and do it effectively) then I could get more of the production done so that we keep to schedule and the director could possible tell my other employers that I am efficient.

Task 1: P1 Explore Production Job Roles For a Chosen Media (Job Title, Description and Responsibilities)

Director:

The main roles and responsibilities of a director are:

A film/TV director usually controls the acting. This means that the director will look over the script and decide how the actors will move,speak, what they will wear, to help portray to the audience the genre of the film, the time era and to clearly show the characters personality, this is needed because it helps the audience to follow the film and be more entertained by it. The director also helps to decide who is being cast  this is because he/she decides what happens on set. without the director the production would not be as easily run, there would be more chaos as the director wouldn’t be there to tell people what to do when they are on set. there would also be more arguments as the director has an overview on what he/she wants the set to look like.

Producer:

The producer will mainly have control over the budget this means that he will provide the funds to make the show and keep the money so that it is safe. he will also provide/keep a schedule for the crew members to keep to so that the film is out on time and that everything is planned. If the producer doesn’t perform at his/her best then the production could loose money or not get the film out on time because there is no set schedule.

Task 2: P2, M1 Analyse Two Roles within the Media Production Team

Pre Production

This is when all the planning for the production starts, it includes:

Location Scouting – This is when someone is hired to go out and find a good location to record, they do this so that there is an added effect on the production and so that it is more clear to the audience where they are if this job wasn’t done properly then the production could look less professional because it wasn’t shot in a good location.The skills needed for this are, insight, social discipline and patience.

Casting – This is when certain people are chosen for certain roles, the director will be present because he needs to decide what happens when they’re on the set, they will read through the part they are auditioning for and their agent will be told if they are successful or not. They will then agree a fee in line with union rights which is equity minimum.The skills needed for this are patience and he needs to be able to clearly imagine the set and what type of people he wants to portray in the production

Schedules: A schedule is something that keeps people on time for things e.g. a recording schedule will make sure that people are recording the right things at the right time. The producer will write these because he/she decides when the film is coming out so they need to make sure there are no clashes and that everything is created on the right date so that the production can be released on the right date.The skills needed for this are organising skills, patience

Script read through: this is when the actors/actresses sit down with the director and producer to check the script, they go through all the things that the actors/actresses are uncomfortable with or don’t like. The script writer will then make any last minute changes. This is when all cast and crew are present and is only when the script is announced as the SHOOTING SCRIPT, then any changes will come out on different colour paper so all crew know there have been changes to certain scenes. it is up to production to make sure these are printed and distributed but the production runner to all cast and crew. The skills needed for this are communication skills, confidence. organisation,

Post Production

Editing: This is when they bring each section of the production together, they add non diabetic sound at this stage the skills needed for this are; good at using software which can vary depending on which company you are editing through. This can include Final Cut Pro or Avid which are professional standard editing software. good communication skills and confidence in their own knowledge of the script. An editor is often described as the second director as they finish the story and can take it in a totally different direction depending on how the producers feel about certain actors and how they come across on screen.

Script breakdown: this is when the script is broken down into different parts, this makes it easier for the editor to understand how the director wants the final product to look. a skill needed for this is good communication skills.

Rushes Log: this a log to say where parts of the film are, this makes it easier for the editor to put the film together. the skills needed for making a rushes log are; patience and attention to detail

Bin Labelling: this is when you label the files that hold the footage so you know which part is which, the skills needed for bin labelling are;patience and organisational skills with attention to detail

Pre Production is where all the planning and creative ideas start, whereas post production is where everything is coming together to be finalised.

Pre Production Includes location scouting, this is when people go out to a certain location and take pictures to take back to the director to see if they are the right location to shoot in. if the pre production is not done properly the there will be a bad script which means that the storyline may not make sense to the audience, the script could be created from bad ideas, which is another impact from not doing the pre production properly, another impact could be that the cast is wrong, there could be bad actors which will lower the professionalism of the production.

Whereas in post production people are putting the film together so they will be hired to edit the production. This includes, putting music in, adding credits, cutting scenes, sorting through clips and putting scenes together, if the editor didn’t do his job properly then the production would not flow and there wouldn’t get any success, the overall production would look bad and it would not be the directors vision, because of this it might not meet the requirements of the director and would not be his original vision.

There are some similarities between pre and post production but they are two completely different sections of film making. One similarity is scheduling inparticular an editing schedule, which allows people to plan what they are going to edit and when, this keeps everyone on track in th long term so that the production isn’t late coming out. There is the same thing for pre production, they will schedule when they are going to record (sound and video) for the same reasons. I also found that they both budget, if they didn’t do that then they would be spending more than they have been given to make the film, which in turn could lower the profit made, both sides of the production have to work to a tight schedule, if they didn’t then the release date would be a lot further away and the potential audience might become uninterested. Within this Schedule the post and pre production people have to work in a team, if they didn’t then the production would not run smoothly.
